Bands and Judges Selected for Hard Rock Rising

The moment we’ve been waiting for is finally here! Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood will host four local bands, all competing for a chance to perform during halftime at Hard Rock Stadium! Bands from around the world were invited to submit their songs online through ReverbNation. The bands were chosen by Hard Rock industry professionals and one “wildcard” performer was chosen through online voting by the local Hollywood, Florida community.

Each local winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize. The winner will be selected to advance to Regional competition and will receive a Fender Instruments Prize Pack and a 1,000 CD/DVD pack courtesy of Bison Disc. The Grand Prize winner will win a trip to Miami Gardens, Florida to perform at Hard Rock Stadium and a professionally produced music video.

Battle of the Bands at Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood will be taking place Friday, May 19th at 8pm.  The bands chosen to compete at this upcoming Battle of the Bands beat out 6000 entrants.


All four bands will be judged by South Florida music industry leaders and aficionados.  Meet the judges for this year’s Battle of the Bands competition.
